Synthesis and applications of methyleneaziridines
Methyleneaziridines (MAs) are a special subset of aziridines featuring an exocyclic C–C double bond on the three-membered ring. They have found great potential in organic synthesis. In this review, the structural characterization of MAs, synthetic methods, chemical transformations and mechanisms, especially the advances achieved over the past decade are comprehensively summarized.
